Home@735 Gallery is pleased to announce that ceramic sculpture artist Hidemi Tokutake will be exhibiting a new series of work with us in early 2015. A Japanese-born ceramic artist, Hidemi started her ceramic journey at Seto Ceramic School in Japan. She later traveled to Australia where she studied for five years obtaining a Masters of Ceramics at The National Art School in 2013.
The delicate and brittle nature of her ceramics draws from both the fragility and strength of the Australian landscapes. The work aims to embody the birth of nature, the wonder of seeds emerging from pods, the continuum of life, which can be likened to a woman giving birth to a child. These sculptures balance visual resemblance to a woman’s reproductive organs, however they also aim to bring to light the beauty, curiosity and unity between both plant and human.
